CHELSEA v Sporting Lisbon: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wed 10 December Kick-off: 19:45 GMT It’s probably just as well we’re already through to the knockout stages of the Champions League because after our first defeat of the season against Newcastle at the weekend, it’s a cert we’d have been written off. Tonight though, whilst Jose Mourinho will use the [...]

CHELSEA 6-0 Maribor: Hurricane Hazard Hits Stamford Bridge

Whilst hurricane Gonzalo threatened to infiltrate Britain, at Stamford Bridge it was all a bit of a breeze for Chelsea against Maribor in the Champions League. Despite previous draws against Schalke and Sporting, last night proved to be a wake up call for the visitors, with their goal given a bit of a battering. Ok, [...]

CHELSEA v Maribor: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Tuesday, 21 October Kick-off: 19:45 BST It’s back to the Champions League tonight and a home game against Maribor. Champions League games are a great opportunity for fans to see a Chelsea match, so make sure you get your tickets before this game (or the next one – I hear we’re [...]

Sporting Lisbon v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Estádio José Alvalade Date: Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Kick-off: 19.45 BST. It’s a trip back to his home country tonight for Jose Mourinho as Chelsea face Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League. Mourinho may have started out at the club as Robson’s interpreter but there’ll be little room for sentimentality after a disappointing draw [...]

CHELSEA 1-1 Schalke: In a Nutshell

I did say in the match preview, I don’t like going into games with excessive confidence – and last night’s result is the reason why. Complacent Street is never a comfortable place to be and yet, after going a goal up, that’s exactly where Chelsea appeared to take a stroll. Couple that with a few [...]

CHELSEA v Schalke: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday 17 September Kick-off: 19:45 Here we go then, our first Champions League game of the season sees us at home to Schalke. We’re no strangers to the German side of course, having played them a few times now and most recently beating them 3-0 twice in last season’s campaign. This [...]

CHELSEA v Atletico Madrid: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday, 30 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST Having clearly upset the media and pundits alike with our ‘shock’ win over Liverpool at the weekend, unlike the league leaders (who prefer to take it easy midweek) it’s back to Europe for us with our Champions League semi-final second leg at home to Atletico [...]

CHELSEA v PSG: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Tuesday, 8 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST After a convincing win against Stoke in the Premier League, tonight sees the return of the Champions League and a visit from PSG in the quarter final second leg. Going into this game 3-1 down from the first leg obviously isn’t the best starting point [...]

PSG v CHELSEA: Champions League Preview

Venue: Parc des Princes Date: Wednesday 2 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST After a dire performance against Crystal Palace at the weekend we could probably do without a trip to France to face PSG right now, particularly a PSG side with the likely pairing of Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic running us ragged anyway. That’s just [...]

CHELSEA v Galatasaray: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: 18 March 2014 Kick-off: 19.45 GMT With Chelsea’s lack of strike force this season, there’ll have been plenty of times we’ve longed for Didier Drogba back but none of us would have opted to see him back in someone else’s colours. That’s how it is though because tonight we see our [...]
